Default Talk me out of it?

I sometimes make impulsive decisions (basically how I ended up with my Z) and Iíve pretty much convinced myself I want cup wheels in bronze for my Le Mans blue Z. Iíve already searched through a bunch of pics so Iíve got a pretty good idea what it would look like. Do you guys think itíd look as good as Iíve got it pictured in my mind? 🤔

Apparently these are on backorder but one of the forum vendors is working with me to make a set in satin black. Iíll just plasti dip them bronze and worst case scenario go with the satin black if I donít like the look.

If you want that more cooler look that unique look have it more eye catching a light bronze but if your talking about dark like copper looking bronze that's just as good looks sleek just like the others I'd say bronze-gun metal-black glossy- chrome in order

You lost me at the wording towards the end but I was thinking a darker bronze would look good with the carís dark blue.

I think it will as well, it is something different regardless. I like them and they are the lightest non-forged wheel from what I have seen. I want BC Forged but I cannot bring myself to spend it.

My T/A has had black wheels for the past decade so I kinda wanted to try something different. Will do regardless.

bro i am from garland, so my first choice is always gold. now i will admit the bronze color that most wheels are available is growing on me.

black wheels are the sure thing, like the solid five at the end of the bar giving you the eye at last call.

you have to take your chances with the nines and tens every now and then.

Do it and post pics. It's your car, do what you dig. Plus, if you dip them and hate it, comes right off.

If that's what you want, then go for it. The world of corvettes is far too boring with all the cars looking alike and too many owners either afraid or unwilling to buck the purists and their views of what is and what isn't acceptable.

If you want your ride to stand out, this is a great way to start.
